Born from Melbourne’s Planetshakers Church, Planetshakers likely needs no introduction as a popular worship import from Australia (seriously, what’s in the water over there?). Overflow (buy) is another energetic, youthful live set steeped in experiential language (“I don’t care what it looks like, I’m diving in.”) that longs for more of the Holy Spirit’s work. The title track, coming on the heels of the animated duo of “Come Right Now” and “River” sounds like an older Hillsong UNITED cut before heading straight for the dance floor. Later on, “Sings My Soul” and “Join with the Angels” are longer, slower songs that balance the mood. Yet overall, Planetshakers musically lives up to its name with an emotionally-charged worship set that should find a home with millennials especially.
